Re: “Feedback 11/7

I've always been amazed that a paper that claims to be an "alternative" to the corporate shills at Gannett makes no more of an effort to engage their readers in a discussion than do the prigs at the D&C.

Re: “Feedback 11/7

Should we assume that those such as SIGNE WILKINSON and the other political cartoonists above who demand an absolute freedom of speech for themselves would be OK with one of their peers creating, and some newspaper publishing, the sort of anti-semitic cartoons so popular in German papers in the 1930s?

Re: “Feedback 10/10

You have to wonder why someone who argues that vaccines aren't all that effective also complains that he can't get them for free. Why would he care?

Re: “Northwest neighborhoods will get a 'history survey'

Most rust belt cities have as large a percentage of older buildings as does Rochester. It's a result of decades of a stagnant or declining industrial economy and population base which provided no reasons to tear then down.

Re: “Feedback 9/12

John Van Lare, I would agree that a free and open press is vital to the continuation of our representative democracy. But I have to point out that today's press is also one of the groups most responsible for that well-packages drama (and filler and fluff and other assorted click bait) designed to please the buyer, which you correctly bemoan.

Re: “Donald Trump, Congress, and the Constitution

I agree that our Tweeter-in-Chief will remain in office until 2021 (not 2020). But this begs the question of what happens then. If nothing else, in 2020 he will be running for re-election as the incumbent. And who will he be running against? At the moment the Democrats have no clear front runner for their nomination. Although Bernie the Hypocrite will doubtless make another run, he's no more a viable candidate now then he was in 2016, his naive followers notwithstanding.
Biden is the most qualified potential candidate, but he's even older than Trump, far too old for the stress of being president. And the Dems have no one else to run except a collection of second stringers and third raters. So right now, the odds seem to be that we're stuck with Demagogue Donny until 2025. As to taking back the House this year (the Senate is out-of-the-question), at best that's a 50-50% proposition given how Democrats keep shooting themselves in the foot with talk of "democratic socialism", "abolish ICE", and "impeachment", views which may thrill part of the party, but do far more to energize the Trumpster opposition. And this is all before Donny (and Vlad) launches the inevitable "October surprise".
